The Catholic University of America’s law school community has enjoyed the beauty of its home for over 25 years. Wrapped around a glass-roofed, four-story atrium, and featuring open and inviting spaces, high tech capabilities, a gorgeous library, and amenities such as access to fitness facilities; the building has raised the bar for law schools.
The Columbus School of Law's building has recently been ranked #9 in “Best Law School Buildings,” in the spring, 2022 issue of preLaw magazine. The law school’s top 10 ranking lands it in the “A+” group. PreLaw conducted a comprehensive survey of the nation’s 200-plus law schools to identify the very best facilities. The survey ranked buildings based on aesthetics, technology, libraries, and amenities.
This is the first ranking preLaw has conducted since 2020 and the pandemic — adding to the celebratory nature of this year’s list. The article noted, “These structures — from sleek, modern designs to ivy-colored classics — are the centerpieces of law school life, but that only applies when they are open. They are now.”
Within easy walking distance of the Brookland-CUA Metro Station, Catholic Law students can also enjoy the beauty and serenity of the University’s 176-acre park-like campus as well as the excitement of being in a global city. For those who wish to drive to and from campus, there is a garage attached to the Law School building for easy, accessible parking.
